Major study in Ecology.
This major is available to Bachelor of Science students who commenced prior to 2008. The published structure of this major includes subjects available in the current year. Pre-2008 Bachelor of Science students who require advice on an appropriate subject selection to complete this major should contact the EPSC.
|Objectives:||The Ecology major will provide the springboard for students in entering careers or research in the following areas: Ecology, Conservation Biology, Animal Behaviour, Evolutionary Biology, Systematic and Biodiversity, Environmental Consulting. Graduates will be prepared for these pathways by developing skills in survey, experimentation and modelling of ecological and evolutionary processes, which are crucial to being prepared to make contributions in research, education or in consulting roles in natural resources management and environmental consulting industries. This major will integrate knowledge from a range of disciplines from genetics through organismal biology to ecosystem science, by enabling students to complete a sequence of specialist subjects in each, as well as integrated subjects in which the students develop an understanding of the application of ecological methods to solving current problems in evolution, ecology and biodiversity. Students will gain experience preparing them for the workplace by participating in group research projects and working groups.|
